The Walking Dead Shut Out At 66th Annual Emmy Awards

Season 4 of The Walking Dead provided some very powerful moments that left viewers shocked and disgusted.  The season changed the way we looked at many of the characters and altered the direction that the series was headed in.  However, powerful drama and excellent characterization on this show was not something that everyone could agree on.

At the 66th Annual Emmy Awards, The Walking Dead was nominated for two awards and failed to bring home either of them.  Here are the outcomes of those categories:

Outstanding Special And Visual Effects In A Supporting Role – 2014

  • Black Sails – “I.”  (WINNER)
  • DaVinci’s Demons – “The Sins of Daedalus”
  • Hawaii Five-0 – “Ho’onani Makuakane”
  • Mob City – “A Guy Walks Into A Bar”
  • The Walking Dead – “30 Days Without An Accident”
  • Vikings – “Invasion”

Outstanding Sound Editing For A Series – 2014

  • Black Sails – “I.”  (WINNER)
  • Boardwalk Empire – “White Horse Pike”
  • Breaking Bad – “Felina”
  • Game of Thrones – “The Watchers on the Wall”
  • The Walking Dead – “Too Far Gone”

terminus-02[1]The most surprising of all this is that the two most powerful episodes of season 4 were overlooked.  Both “The Grove” and “A” were overlooked as well as the amazing job that was done on costume and stunts.  While both “30 Days Without An Accident” and “Too Far Gone” were good episodes, I didn’t feel they had the same emotional impact as those mentioned before.

Personally, I’d like to congratulate The Walking Dead on a fantastic job during Season 4.  Even if the Emmy Awards didn’t recognize them with many nominations or wins, the cast and crew of this show deserve many kudos for a job well done.
